This Saturday from from 11am to 6pm is also the 12th annual Sparx City Hop in Cleveland, featuring trolley hops from Downtown to Ohio City, Tremont, AsiaTown and several other lively and emerging neighborhoods. Many studios, galleries, restaurants and markets will be staging open houses along each trolley route. A great way to catch of glimpse of what's hot in Cleveland.
